Every once in a while, I pick up books I read many moons ago. When I picked this one up 4 days ago, I remembered how amazing the main characters’ story was. How beautifully written the story is and up until now, I am still tearful. If you haven’t yet read this story – you should!
My Review back in 2012:
Echo Emerson a beautiful, broken girl that seeks normal. She is trying to remember what happened on that horrific night that left her scarred forever. Her family is a MESS, a depressed mother, a father who tries to get everything back to normal, a brother who was killed in Afghanistan, and a nanny that turned into her stepmother. She managed to keep her friends in school and now Luke her ex-boyfriend wants to be with her again. She can now finally see her life being back to normal again but here comes Noah Hutchins.
Noah Hutchins the troubled Hot Bad Boy. His life turned upside down after an accident that killed both his parents. He is determined to get his brothers back and have his family together again after he graduated from high school. He got it all planned but then here comes Echo, the girl that captured his heart.
I love this book. It is the most realistic story of lovers who struggle to find their individual self. I never felt tears in my eyes in a Young Adult story before, I cried twice on this one. This tragic story keeps getting better and better every time you turn the pages. The hope of finding out the truth made this story very interesting for me. I just love it when main characters never give up on what they wanted to achieve.
One word that would sum up this book, OUTSTANDING.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to people who love YA Romance. It is a must read.
“I want to be by your side. If you want to go to the mall stark naked so you can show the world your scars, then let me hold your hand. If you want to see your mom, then tell me that, too. I may not always understand, but damn baby, I’ll try.”
